Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute's Diversity Statement

The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute recognises the importance of diversity in the workplace. We respect people as individuals and value their differences. We believe that diversity in ethnicity, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, religion, and perspective contributes to our success as an institute.

The Institute believes in treating all people with respect and dignity. We strive to foster a supportive and inclusive workplace in which all individuals realise their potential and where everyone in the workplace enjoys equal opportunity to succeed without any barriers due to their differences.

We embrace diversity as a source of strength and recognise the strategic advantage that comes from incorporating a wide variety of capabilities, experiences, and insights.

The Institute is committed to:

  • Raising awareness of and increasing our commitment to workplace diversity
  • Recruiting, retaining, and developing a diverse workforce
  • Providing a supportive working environment that meets the needs of a diverse workforce
  • Promoting and encouraging a diverse workplace by fostering an environment of mutual learning, respect, and appreciation of differences
